The New York Giants and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul have agreed to a new four-year contract, reports NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

The Giants also used the franchise tag on Pierre-Paul in 2015 and had offered him a long-term, $60 million contract.

The Giants had placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on the 2010 first-round pick with the plan to "aggressively" work towards a long-term deal prior to the July 15 deadline.

Ultimately, both the Giants and Pierre-Paul had the necessary motivation to get something done and, slightly more than a week into free agency, they finally made that happen - although Pierre-Paul would caution that the deal is not yet "signed".

"This is where I wanted to be", Pierre-Paul said.

Pierre-Paul's 50 career sacks are seventh in Giants history behind Hall of Famers Michael Strahan and Lawrence Taylor, Leonard Marshall, Osi Umenyiora, Keith Hamilton, and Justin Tuck.

"This is where I want to be", Pierre-Paul said.

Now, Pierre-Paul is vowing to be even better despite the limitations of his right hand. In a home victory against Chicago on November 20, he tied his career high with 2.5 sacks. Things happen for a reason. He was limited to eight games that season and finished with one sack and 26 tackles. "Last year, I was still making adjustments". Each of his touchdowns has been in a Giants' victory. He quickly developed into a star with 16 ½ sacks in 2011 to help the Giants win Super Bowl XLVI.

"I'm happy to be here, I'm blessed to be here", he said. "I'm a Giant for life right now".
